Gustav Mahler - Symphony No.9 in D-major - IV, Adagio. Sehr langsam
Gustav Mahler - Symphony No.9 in D-major - IV, Adagio. Sehr langsam The Symphony No. 9 by Gustav Mahler was written between 1908 and 1909, and was the last symphony that he completed. The symphony is in four movements: 1. Andante comodo (D major); 2. Im Tempo eines gemächlichen Ländlers. Etwas täppisch und sehr derb (C major); 3. Rondo-Burleske: Allegro assai. Sehr trotzig (A minor); 4. Adagio. Sehr langsam und noch zurückhaltend (D-flat major). Although the symphony has the traditional number of movements, it is unusual in that the first and last are slow rather than fast. As is often the case with Mahler, one of the middle movements is a ländler. The first movement embraces a loose sonata form; the work opens with a hesitant, syncopated motif which is to return at the height of the movement's development as a sudden intrusion of "death in the midst of life", announced by trombones and marked within the score "with the greatest force". The second movement is a dance, a Ländler, but it has becomes distorted to the point that it no longer resembles a dance. The movement contains shades of the second movement of Mahler's Fourth Symphony, in the distortion of a traditional dance into a dance of death. For example, Mahler alters traditional chord sequences into near-unrecognizable variations, turning the rustic and mostly diatonic C major introductory Ländler into a vicious whole-tone waltz, saturated with accidentals and frantic rhythms. The third movement, in the form of a rondo, displays the final maturation of Mahler's contrapuntal skills ...
Brahms - Michelangeli, Ballade Op.10 No 4 in B major
Brahms - Michelangeli, Ballade Op.10 No 4 in B major (Lugano, 1981) Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (January 5, 1920 June 12, 1995) was an Italian classical pianist. He has been regarded as among the most commanding and individual piano virtuosos of the 20th century, among names such as Horowitz and Richter. Along with Ferruccio Busoni, he is often considered the most important Italian pianist. Born in Brescia, Italy, he began music lessons at the age of three, initially with the violin, but quickly switched to the piano. At ten he entered the Milan Conservatory. In 1938, at age eighteen, he began his international career by entering the Ysaÿe International Festival in Brussels, Belgium, where he placed seventh (a brief account of this competition, at which Emil Gilels took first prize, is given by Arthur Rubinstein, who was one of the judges. According to Rubinstein, Michelangeli gave "an unsatisfactory performance, but already showed his impeccable technique"). A year later he earned first prize in the Geneva International Competition where he was acclaimed as "a new Liszt" by pianist Alfred Cortot, a member of the judging panel, which was presided by Ignacy Jan Paderewski. Michelangeli was known for his note-perfect performances. The music critic Harold Schonberg wrote of him: "His fingers can no more hit a wrong note or smudge a passage than a bullet can be veered off course once it has been fired...The puzzling part about Michelangeli is that in many pieces of the romantic repertoire he seems unsure of himself ...
AB MICHELANGELI plays:S.RACHMANINOFF -Concerto no.4 op.40- I Tempo(1
AB MICHELANGELI plays:S.RACHMANINOFF -Concerto no.4 op.40- I Tempo(1 Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli plays:Sergei Rachmaninoff -Concerto no.4 op.40 I Tempo- # Philharmonia Orchestra/Ettore Gracis - London March 1957 Sergei Rachmaninoff completed his Piano Concerto No. 4 in G minor, Op. 40 in 1926 and the work currently exists in three versions. Following its unsuccessful premiere he made cuts and other amendments before publishing it in 1928. With continued lack of success, he withdrew the work, eventually revising and republishing it in 1941. Form: Compared to its predecessors, the Fourth contains sharper thematic profiles along with a refinement of textures in keyboard and orchestra. These qualities do not lead to greater simplicity but to a different sort of complexity. It was also a continuation of Rachmaninoff's long-range creative growth. The Third and the recomposed First Concertos were less heavily orchestrated than the Second. In keeping with its general character, the Fourth is lighter still yet more oblique.[2] The concerto is written in three movements: 1. Allegro vivace (G minor) 2. Largo (C major) 3. Allegro vivace (G major) « Essere un pianista e un musicista non è una professione. E' una filosofia, uno stile di vita che non può basarsi né sulle buone intenzioni né sul talento naturale. Bisogna avere prima di tutto uno spirito di sacrificio inimmaginabile. » (Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli) Biography di ABMichelangeli: Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (January 5, 1920 June 12, 1995) was an Italian classical pianist.
